Boom Child – The Super Edible EP – EP Review

The Irish good-time-rock trio Boom Child made available the five track digital EP – The Super Edible EP a couple of hours ago.

On Friday of last week they launched the physical version which also included three bonus tracks – making it an LP – of the conundrums of life – as of now you can only catch those CDs if you are purchasing from the Merchandise Stall at their gigs.

Opening with I WANT TO SHIFT YOUR SISTER – an insightful reflective of relationship values in 2016 in a thrusting rock’n’roll confrontation.

Next is Holiday and my pick of the release as angular spears of pulsing maths-rock strut around the room in just under three minutes of music in which to pogo whilst DM boots are tied with bondage straps.

Following on is Wreckin’ My Head which is well worth the purchase price of the release as the cascading guitars cross each other like plumes rising from a waterfall as each element collapses inside the other before emerging triumphantly, subsequently folding like wet cardboard inside the stream of sound. A superb number and one to keep as reference point.

The penultimate track K – Pop surfaces as it says on the tin – fleet of foot – whilst an ever evolving undertow of sludgy retro-merseybeat gives this a gravitational anchor.

The concluding track on the digital release – CHANGE 4 U slips between choke hold and kiss of life in a highly creative take on the social malaise of relationship mendacity of 2016.

The Australian reverb-rock band Ocean Alley are set to release the LP Lost Tropics in April.

From the album – the fifth of the eleven tracks – Holiday, which was also released as a single earlier in the month.

There is an immediately calming sound that squeezes out of the speakers, reminding the listener of balmy beach warming hazy-sun days.

There is a delight in reviewing bands from around the world, as there are always warming sun-rays to be found in some latitude and even though over here in England it isn’t the warmest of winter days, I am minded to light up the barbecue and keep warm with Ocean Alley and Holiday.

Holiday – Single – Ocean Alley is available on iTunes.*

Taken from the LP, Holiday, finds the band in more of a garage rock mood, than when last looked at twelve months ago.
